Publisher's Summary

1192 A.D. - Sir Roane Garr is a member of St. John the Baptist Hospitaller sect and while visiting the supposed Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, he is hit by a freak bolt of lightning and suddenly finds himself with miraculous healing powers. The Hospitallers believe he is a heretic and must be destroyed, so he flees back to England and into seclusion as a bounty is put on his head.

Enter Lady Alisanne de Soulant, a young lady who is losing her sight. Forced by bounty hunters hired by the Hospitallers to lure Roane out of hiding, she finds herself torn between saving Roane's life and the life of her father, whom the bounty hunters hold hostage in order to insure her cooperation. After she helps the bounty hunters capture Roane, guilt and a growing attraction prompt her to help him escape their clutches, only to find herself captured and punished. Those who seek to collect a price on Roane's head realize he is in love with the woman they used as bait and they use her once more to lure him back out of hiding. Now, stakes of the game have grown in a brutal tit-for-tat game. When Roane is recaptured trying to aid Alisanne, it becomes up to Alisanne, her father, and a rag-tag band of heroes to save Roane from the Hospitallers and certain death.

Never has there been a more pathetic, yet courageous, group of misfits as they strive to save the powerful and pious knight once called the Lord of Light.

Warning: Not the one written by Zelazny

I picked up this book because I confused it with the book of the same title by Roger Zelazny, which won a Hugo Award.

I listened in puzzlement to the end, expecting some plot twist to justify the Hugo Award. Instead I found it to be an utterly boring pointless bore throughout, before finally realizing I had the wrong book.

It was okay

It wasn't the best of Kathryn Le Veque's books. At least it was not my favorite. It just wasn't as interesting.

Awesome story

Loved this book. Another great book. Great narrator. This story was well written and full of interesting facts and myths. Can’t get much better when you read a Kathryn Le Veque novel.
